Saved to Memory: Lost to View is a memoir of a mid­twentieth century rural childhood and adolescence. It begins in a pre­electric world of labour in milking sheds, meadows and tillage fields tempered by rudimentary games involving conkers, magnets, spinning tops and improvised footballs and hurling balls. The soundtrack of that fifties childhood is generated by a wireless tuned to Radio Eireann, the melodies of church choirs and the hypnotic rhythms of trains chugging into Birdhill Station.
